    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    I was just recently told that Apple Pie is a Canadian "invention"... in my search to preserve part of my American dream of baseball and apple pie... I found this recipe that is truly Canadian. In fact, I can now live in denial as my search went no further than the fritter as I abandoned all research to whip these up... These are so delicious and so delicate - just in time for apple season too..... I raise my glass of Fosters (Australian for Canadian Beer) in thanks and gratitude!

    1. 1
      Whisk the egg and the sugar in a mixing bowl until foamy and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the wine, apple juice, salt, lemon and orange zests and mix thoroughly. Add the flour and blend until the batter is smooth. Allow the batter to rest, covered, for 1 hour.Combine the apple wedges and the batter. Coat the fruit gently but thoroughly with batter.
    2. 2
      Pour oil to a depth of 5 inches in a deep pot. Heat over medium heat until it registers to 350º F on a deep-frying thermometer.
    3. 3
      To make the fritters, use a large spoon to scoop up about four apple wedges and use another spoon to push the mixture gently into the oil. Continue adding fritters to the hot oil, but do not overcrowd.
    4. 4
      Deep fry until light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain the fritters on absorbent towels. Repeat with the remaining fruit and batter. It is best to serve fritters immediately, but if necessary, they may be kept warm in a 200° F oven while finishing the remaining fritters; leave uncovered to keep fritters crisp.Dust lightly with confectioner's sugar and serve with whipped cream.

      We love apple fritters and these were yummy. My sons had some friends over and they were gone in no time. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

      Great fritters! I think I would like it with cinnamon sugar mixed in or on top too, and I think the apples would be more tender if sliced in 16ths instead of 8ths, but delicious as is. We had leftovers, and put them in the oven the next morning. They were still yummy!

      Yum! These were really good!! i just loved them! I had some apples i needed to use and thought to use this recipe as it's different, i didn't want to make apple pie. They were light and fluffy to me and tasted like beignets with apples in them. Thanks!
